Timeless Thursday...flag it

Timeless Tuesday@ Flourishes this week is to add a flag/banner to your card. Well hey I'm not so good at this but I recently got a little die cut of a flag from my order from LilInker's and it was a perfect way to cut out a flag. I chose the Christmas Classic stamp set and stamped out this bough of greenery and bells . This did not photo very well with the glittery  I added, but IRL it looks loverly. My glittery punched border was found over at Hobby Lobby and it's a bit pricey @ $2 a sheet but ...it was on sale so I let the moths out of my wallet and decided to pay the price, after all you have to splurge once in awhile. ( I even bought a sheet forDD...now that was really extravagant).  My BG is from Studio Paper . My card was made with a very dark green base.
Well it's almost turkey day and of course it's time to stuff the bird and of course yourselves too. Love this holiday but it's scary to realize Christmas is just around the corner and I better get busy starting my shopping. When you get old like me the best answer is gift cards...that way your gift can be used the way the receiver wants it to be. Anyway have a happy weekend and see you next time.
